At the start of the shift the sales manager would have a meeting with the staff on that shift to go over sales numbers, strategies, and goals. It would also get opened up to talk about any issues or concerns from staff. Next it would be out to the sales floor to first help customers, then work on stock, tags, and if need be, planograms. During the shift if there was any downtime or slower business we would clean, dust, and tidy the section we were responsible for.
I learned about working in retail. How to do planograms, set up displays and demos, and how to handle stock. I also learned the process of inventory counts and loss prevention.
Management was always helpful if there were any issues, concerns or questions.
Co workers were always very competitive which made it enjoyable and motivating, but at the same time light and fun.
Hardest part of the job was when someone called in sick on a busy day.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the competitiveness.
